Student presents research to House of Representatives
Amenta was competitively selected as one of four students to represent Penn State at this event. She and 47 other students statewide presented posters of their undergraduate research, met with legislators, and were announced on the floor of the House of Representatives as the best and the brightest in the state.
In addition to being honored last Tuesday, back in November Jessica was awarded the Best Student Poster Award for this work at the International Meeting of the Waterbird Society, a professional society designated to the scientific study of waterbirds.
Amenta is currently working with Dr. Jennifer Arnold, Assistant Professor of Biology, on a manuscript on the study described in the poster and is planning on joining her in the field during the summer.
